I took logic in college which was easy). Anyway, from what I recall, consecutive integers are whole numbers in sequence, such as 1, 2, 3, 4. The 'product' means multiplication. The only way to get a product of 9 would be 1 X 9 or 3 X 3 (or -1 X -9 or -3 X -3). Since all are marked < rather than a mix of < and >, I can't figure it out. Now if the integers were squares, it would work. If j is 12, k is 22 and n is 32, it would work. 1 squared is 1. Three squared is 9 and 1 X 9 = 9. But that is not an option.<br />2) C - 10<br />3) E<br />4) A<br />SC Businessmannoreply@blogger.com
